It's a very long story, but I currently work at a pediatric facility plagued with many problems. I have spent the last 18 months trying to sort them out, and I had a wonderful manager. Was making progress-our last audit was our best ever. I have a colleague who is ultra competitive and has been out to get me-others back me on this. It started because when I was new, I outperformed her on something. I didn't even realize it at the time, and did not understand why she was targeting me. She once filed a false report on me to the state, which was promptly dismissed. She has a long history of doing this, and I do not think they take her too seriously anymore thank God! She has done dozens of other things, all unethical and some borderline illegal. Not just to me, but to many others too. I cannot be more specific on a public forum, and even if I could, it'd be hard to believe. My manager just left. She is in line to be my new manager. Between that and the intrinsic problems of the facility, I have to get out of here. My license is at risk and that is not hypothetical. I am devastated as I really love my patients. I also have to quit without notice as this place has a very long history of retaliating against people during their 2 week period. Right now I have a very good reputation and I want to keep it that way. I have never before quit a job without a new one lined up. I have multiple people willing to be references, some of whom offered outright. I am contemplating a lateral move as well as elder care, as I used to volunteer at an SNF from age 13-18, and I actually miss it. I want to keep my foot in the door in other specialties too though, so actually considering doing two part time gigs-one in peds and one in SNF. All that aside, in interview, obviously less is more. I am not going to say all of the above. But, what do I say? The honest truth is that I quit without having another job lined up because my license is at risk intrinsically due to issues with the facility, and this is amplified by an incredibly vindictive individual.
